'We must keep focus on mental health training'


I am not a Mental Health Nurse but trained in general, midwifery and Health Visiting. I now work in a Mental Health Trust and can see the absolute need to have nurses who are highly trained in this speciality- especially given the ever more complex cases our trained Mental Health Nurses are having to deal with. Maybe in order to address the parity of esteem issue we could have both- generic( as are GPs) to deal with for example some aspects of older adult care and more specialist Mental Health Nurses who caseload manage and deal with more complex cases. In all disciplines one size doesn't always fit all!
